This is the Cadillac of varnishes. During a recent cello restoration (I'm an amateur luthier) I learned 57 ways NOT to mix and apply this golden elixir. For the poster who indicated trouble with the product, here are some tips:

Dilute with denatured alcohol. If using pigment, dilute for that as well. To help get a feel for the varnish, maybe start with a 25% dilution. Nothing wrong with thin coats. Read more on the use of spirit varnishes.

You cannot overcoat an area more than a few seconds after application. plan your work. I found that working on different areas of the cello top different days worked well. In the end it all blended together.

Use a good brush. Clean the brush carefully after every use (denatured alcohol). You must work quickly. I found that The Complete Capitol Recordings of Art Tatum to be ideal music while varnishing. Fast, very well controlled, not frantic (except to the unenlightened).
